We are delighted to announce that the European Centre for Advanced Studies has recently secured substantial funding from the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture to support a new round of joint project grants under the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme

This funding not only reinforces the commitment of both regions to the continued promotion of academic excellence and international knowledge production, but more importantly offers another generation of early career researchers the opportunity to engage in collaborative projects of their choice. 

The application process for postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students will open in April 2024, inviting tandems of talented academics to submit proposals that demonstrate excellence and promise in their respective fields. We particularly encourage projects that address pressing challenges affecting Lower Saxony, Scotland and global society. 

Successful applicants will benefit from mentoring and access to networking and additional funding opportunities.

Details of eligibility criteria and application procedures will be available on the official Tandem Fellowship Programme website: https://ecas-academia.org/tandem-fellowship/.

We look forward to welcoming a new cohort of scholars through the continuation of the programme and are grateful for the support of the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture
